Hannah Höch (fan club)

Some mail artists add a stamp print to their mail art, saying 'Hannah Hoch Fan Club'.Until I received these stamp prints I never had heard of this artist, who was born 1st of November 1889. She has been a collage / photomontage pioneer. She was part of the Dada movement and also became involved in the De Stijl art…See More

Religion and Politics??

Posted on June 28, 2013 at 2:30am 37 Comments

I know that in polite society we aren't supposed to discuss religion and politics, and I have no intention of delving into the religion thing, but politics - well, maybe.



I am curious about political mail art. I've seen some, but rarely make it. Not because it offends me but because I don't really know how to integrate the two very well. And I wonder if some people might be offended by receiving it.



I suspect there is a long history of political mail art, but I don't know… Continue

I was shocked and saddened when hearing Susan had died.  She was a good artist and an even better person.  I'm glad I got to have her at many of the Meetups I was hosting back in the day.  She made everything she touched more lovely.

I am putting together a FaceBook page in her memory and would greatly appreciate any scans you can send me of art she sent to you.  I want to share as much of her art with the world as I can!  

Send it to me in an email or leave it here in a comment with permission to post it on FB.

If you send an email, please put 'for Susan's memorial page' in the subject line.

Thanks, in advance, for your help with this.

This is very sad news. Susan was one of the first people to send me art when I joined IUOMA. Her unique line work was always interesting. They reminded me of automatic drawings. RIP Susan, you will be missed.

Susan will be dearly missed,

and yes, Richard, her "bold" black and white creations, too.

I was lucky enough to receive a few postcards from Susan McAllister. ...the images usually consisted of some bold simplified cartoonish head drawing with markers of red, black with critical empty white spaces. ... I did not know hardly anything about her but I admired  & liked her very much. I was oftentimes reminded of Pablo Picasso's statement:"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once (s)he grows up."
